Excitement is building in the world of mixed martial arts as top-ranked Bellator featherweights, Aaron Pico and Pedro Carvalho, prepare to clash at the highly anticipated Dublin show on September 23.
Officials from the promotion have confirmed that this electrifying matchup will take place at the renowned 3Arena in Ireland, setting the stage for an epic showdown.
Both fighters bring their unique skill sets and relentless determination to the cage, promising a thrilling battle that fans won't want to miss. Pico, with a record of 11 wins and 4 losses, is coming off a hard-earned decision victory over James Gonzalez in April.
Before that, he experienced a setback in 2022 against Jeremy Kennedy, where a shoulder injury forced him to relinquish the fight in the first round. Nevertheless, Pico has an impressive six-fight winning streak leading up to that encounter, showcasing his potential to dominate the division.
On the other side of the octagon, Carvalho looks to bounce back after a recent defeat to Kennedy earlier this year in Dublin. The Portuguese fighter, with a record of 13 wins and 7 losses, has had a significant portion of his career unfold in the vicinity of his MMA team SBG.
Carvalho emerged victorious in two of his previous three fights held in that neighborhood, defeating Mads Burnell and Daniel Weichel. Determined to regain his winning form, Carvalho will bring his tenacity and formidable skills to the Dublin event.
The Dublin show promises to be an unforgettable night of fights, with a stacked card featuring some of Bellator's most promising talent. In the main event, Birmingham's own Fabian Edwards will challenge Johnny Eblen for the middleweight title.
Additionally, fans can look forward to captivating clashes such as Mads Burnell vs. Daniel Weichel, Sinead Kavanagh vs. Sara Collins, and many more exciting matchups that will undoubtedly leave spectators on the edge of their seats.
Bellator Dublin has become synonymous with thrilling fights and passionate crowds, creating an electric atmosphere that fighters feed off. The historic 3Arena will once again host this epic event, providing the perfect backdrop for Pico and Carvalho to showcase their skills and determination.
With both fighters hungry for victory and aiming to make a statement in the stacked featherweight division, the stage is set for an explosive encounter that could potentially steal the show. Mark your calendars for September 23 and prepare for an unforgettable night of world-class mixed martial arts action in the heart of Dublin.
